Vanderbilt Kennedy Center provides Web site to help families find research studies

Jan. 6, 2005, 9:38 AM

NASHVILLE, Tenn. ñ Families, health care professionals and other
service providers in search of current research on developmental
disabilities can now quickly and easily find relevant studies using
Study Finder, a new online service from the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center
for Research on Human Development. The service is located at http://kc.vanderbilt.edu/studyfinder.

Research studies offer intervention and other ways of advancing understanding of development and disabilities.

To find a study of interest, Study Finder users select a category, such
as depression or Down syndrome, and receive a list of current studies
and brief descriptive and contact information. The query is
confidential.

A study finder designed specifically for autism research opportunities is available at https://kc.vanderbilt.edu/aro.

Study Finder is regularly updated as new projects are funded or participant recruitment ends.

For information, please contact Teresa Turnbo at 615-936-5118 or teresa.turnbo@vanderbilt.edu.
